Our Sirdar Sherpa, Lam Babu, is at the South Col and relaying messages during the climb.

Dave Hahn, Melissa Arnot and the team are at the Balcony!  The climbing team is changing oxygen bottles, having a snack and a drink. Next stop the South Summit!

Here at Everest Basecamp, the top of Pumori is just starting to catch some light. No wind. It’s a beautiful morning!
